My N.Y.E Outfit

20120102-101919.jpg

We spent NYE at a fabulous little French restaurant in Brooklyn. At the countdown they gave everyone sparklers for their table, and at the stroke of midnight we could see the Grand Army fireworks from the window. Here’s to more sparklers and fireworks in 2012!

What I wore:
Dress: Many Folds from Anthropologie
Fabulous silk dress with whimsical origami cranes that I scored for 30% off. However, NOT weather appropriate for winter in the Northeast no matter how many UNIQLO Heat Tech layers you wear underneath.

Bracelets: Studded leather wrap bracelets from Jcrew and Madewell.

Shoes: Frye Allie Softy pump
Beautiful to look at, but impossible to walk in. I had to swap out some sparkly Gap ballet flats for transportation.

Rings: Bamboo stacking rings with aquamarine birthstone
My Christmas present!

Scarf: My beloved Missoni scarf that I wear every day
I got mine at a sale at Filene’s Basement, but the same one was recently listed at Anthro.

Nail polish: Kennebunk-Port by OPI

Lipstick (not pictured): Red Zin by Bare Minerals

Coat (not pictured): Giant warm puffy coat from Soia & Kyo
See above note about the non-weather appropriate dress! I was still cold.

Bag (not pictured): Vintage
